SDLU is a fork of spam-l.com, which itself is the direct descendant of
the Lsoft SPAM-L mailing list which closed in May 2008. None of this
matters to newcomers anyway, but I like keeping the historical record
straight.

What matters is there are good people with experience on both lists. I
assume this anyway, although I've not signed up for the SDLU list so I
don't who all is there. Rob's there so you're already in good company
if you choose SDLU.

What also matters is just getting engaged. Join one list or another and
participate in the spam fighting community so you can learn and
contribute techniques, tools, and experience.

You can't really make a mistake joining any one list. If it sucks, join
another. Just get involved beyond the limited A/S discussions on MTA or
IMAP server mailing lists. You'll gain insight into fighting spam that
you otherwise won't be exposed to.
